Great find!

Hello—I’m new to the podcast and I’m enjoying it. As a one time DIII runner myself, I find myself pulling for you guys! One comment—unless I am in a relatively quiet space, I can’t easily hear the podcast...and since I like listening to it while on runs, it ain’t the best. Not sure if this is remedied with better mics or if you need a better space fir the recordings. Anyway, looking forward to more of these.

Great!

I don't normally write reviews but this podcast was too great not to share. I hope they continue to create new ones.

View into the professional running world

This podcast offers a great insight into the trials and triumphs of professional runners. As a HS coach and runner myself, this always provides great insight for my own practices. Always worth a listen.
